Wake up! Nothing is Permanent Except Change Solo
Diana Stelin Gallery
February 16 - March 17, 2024
Reception: Join us for 'Un bel dí vedremo,' the Reception for Wake Up! Nothing is Permanent Except Change Saturday, February 17, 6-8 pm. Come in your best Madam Butterfly influence that explores themes of 'all' love, the heartbreak of nature, love of life's blaring call, and cultural differences that blend East and West cultures. This love story marks the day Madame Butterfly premiered and is the perfect blend of Eastern and Western cultures of our featured artist, Jennifer Jean Okumura. Staying true to the show theme, Nothing is permanent except change; only constant in life, the only thing we can be sure will happen. Change brings perspective, clarity, and true unconditional love like the Sun. We live in an ocean of energy in constant motion, and our life, 'everything' around us, is temporary -- Madame Butterfly encapsulates all this. This tale of a young Japanese geisha who marries an American naval officer; she embraces the changes that come her way, for they are the catalysts for the growth of her limitations, and she emerges as her most authentic self on its transformative journey that does not always have a happy ending. We celebrate change, life, and love on February 17, 6-8 pm.
